February Food Haul From MYchoi to Me! :)

[ Edited ]

The lovely MYchoi was fabulous enough to offer to ship me some delicious treats from California to Pennsylvania. She knows I LOVE Asian food but have no Asian markets near my homestead. Here are some of the wonderful things she included:

SAM_1127.JPG^Seaweed.

 

SAM_1129.JPG^Melon flavored gummies (one of my favorites!) and melon flavored hard candies.

 

SAM_1131.JPG^Green tea, panda, and strawberry pocky. I busted into the green tea pocky IMMEDIATELY!

 

SAM_1132.JPG^Various crackers/biscuits/pies.

^Bae, various mochi, and green tea swiss rolls (another fave).

 

SAM_1134.JPG^Strawberry Calpico, aloe drink, and melon yogurt drink.

 

Do any of you have any favorite Asian foods, or foods from your culture or other cultures that you love?

mmmmmmm yummy!! I always end up cutting mine into tiny cake sllice-like wedges to keep me from gobbling it in 2 bites.

Okay, I've eaten:

 

  • ALL the pocky! (Panda was our favorite)
  • Aloe drink (Super MMM!)
  • Calpico (Need to try the lychee)
  • Mochi (The pink one was my favorite, the red bean paste one was my hubby's fave)
  • Swiss rolls (Still my favorite)
  • Both pies (Liked the sweet potato)
  • Strawberry pies (I made a terrible mess with these... so flaky!)
  • White biscuits (Loved these!)
  • Kancho (So good)

Costco actually carry those dried seaweed snacks and I've seen Pocky at asian section in walmart. The rest I've only seen in Asian grocery stores. I did buy matcha powder from Teavanna so I can make my own green tea baked goods, but I my favorite have to be taro flavored stuff. I LOVE taro ice cream, taro cake, taro bobba tea. 

 

And sweet egg rolls (no, not what you are thinking) are always popular. I like the fancy ones with taro and white chocolate:

Trader Joe's and World Market are other places I've seen some of these foods :smileyhappy:

Re: February Food Haul From MYchoi to Me! :)

I LOVE white chocolate so now I definitely want these! :smileyhappy:

At my Costco, I once saw a small section of Shin Ramyun! O.o

Hands down the best ramen of all time. Unfortunately, I think it's killing off my taste buds, because I keep having to cook it spicier and spicier each time... :smileytongue:

Oh it's also available at my Walmart! It's my favorite Ramen, SO good! But it's spicy and gives me pimples. *sobs*

I love this stuff! I usually pick it up from World Market but have seen it at Meijer on occasion.

I have actually used an egg roll wrapper, filled it with banana slices and peanut butter and fried, my kids love it.

Re: February Food Haul From MYchoi to Me! :)

Ohhh I've never had sweet egg rolls with filling!  My grandpa would always buy us the plain ones and I would stuff my face with an entire box in one sitting.  Must find these magic filled ones!!

Pocky! And the little mushroom shaped biscuits with chocolate. Oh, and aloe drinks and basil seed drinks (because I feel like I'm eating little eyeballs, which is gross, but cool if you want to feel like a monster)

 

I'm super jealous, because I can't find an Asian food market near me that has any kind of selection. They're all very tiny and not well stocked. *sigh* I need friends in culturally spectacular places to ship me lovely yummies. 

 

I've never tried the green tea Swiss rolls, but I'm super interested now!

 

Hope you enjoy your fun food haul!

Re: February Food Haul From MYchoi to Me! :)

I'm trying to get used to the idea of chunks of things in my drink. I don't drink orange juice with pulp because it freaks me out. So I'm at least moving forward somewhat. haha.

 

The green tea swiss rolls are one of my favorites. I definitely recommend them if you can find them! :smileyhappy:

I eat a lot of this stuff. I love the aloe drinks and pocky. I have a world food market that is fairly close that carries most of these things. Plus we have a heavy Asian population. I love the gummy candy but I usually buy the peach ones. 

 

Ramunes are good too, have fun trying to get the marbles out.

If you ever feel industrious you should try making Onigiri

Re: February Food Haul From MYchoi to Me! :)

I just tried my aloe drink today! It tasted a lot better than I thought it would but I was surprised by the bits in it! haha.

Urbie

Re: February Food Haul From MYchoi to Me! :)

Heehee, i love the little bits, they are super sweet and delicious.  Just a heads up, aloe juice is a good substitute for um...dulcolax.  Only if you drink more than one serving size though.

killahbabe

Re: February Food Haul From MYchoi to Me! :)

I was afraid of that! There's still 90% of the bottle left! I'm fine with throwing pee pants around but that's where I draw the line! haha.

evno

Re: February Food Haul From MYchoi to Me! :)

Hahahaha! I totally know what you mean by the... Dulcolax. :smileywink:  

 

But I'm kind of weird, and I love little bits in my drinks. Pulp in orange juice, whole grapes in Bong Bong (I think it's called), aloe vera bits in aloe drinks, and tapioca in my smoothies! :smileyvery-happy:
